A notch below the next night for me for mix & missing set
First of all this is a strong upgrade over prior sources and transfers and if you're a fan of these shows you should get it now.
This set is very well played and energetic but while it's more cleanly done it doesn't have the highlights that the following night did to my ear. My favorite part of this show, the stupendous Bird Song, isn't in this fileset, which is really too bad. The He's Gone is really great though, and there are no bad moments at all.
Also the tape - while absolutely an improvement over everything else you'll find - is also not as great as the next night's 24 bit transfer from these same fine people. That's not their fault, it's in the master. This "Ultramatrix" (made live at the board, and like the following night I think probably by Don Pearson and not Healy) has a little too much audience for my ear, just a little, whereas the next night is nearly perfect in that regard. And the noted bass distortion is a factor though not a major one.
